Effingham County Sportsman's Club
4H Youth Shoot
The Club sponsors a 4H Youth Shooting Sports club, the Mid-Illinois Extreme Shooters, which meets at the Club on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Start time is 2pm or 3pm depending on program, and goes until 5pm. The adult instructors must pass rigorous 4H shooting sports training to qualify. They teach youth a variety of shooting sports, including BB gun, archery, rifle, pistol, shotgun and even mushroom hunting. Activities are different each month depending on weather conditions and interest of shooters. If you have a child or grandchild who you would like to introduce to the outdoors and shooting sports in a safe and controlled environment, this is a great place to start. There are no fees for youth to participate, and adults are encouraged to stay and assist where needed.
